Roosting Turkeys

While leaving work on Monday I noticed something across the parking lot.

Seeing wild turkeys is not uncommon in our parking lot as a large rafter of wild turkeys lives in the area.

Here we see three roosting wild turkeys.

The colors of the feathers are really beautiful.

I will have to keep an eye out to see if I can capture more than six.
